upcoming-movie-Padmavati-Deepika-Padukone-Ranveer-Singh-and-Shahid-Kapoor

When it was announced that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is making a film based on the folklore of Rani Padmini, it had everyone excited. Later, when the cast of the film was locked and it was made public that Deepika Padukone will be seen in the titular character, while Ranveer Singh will be seen playing Sultan Alauddin Khilji, however it was the unusual casting of Shahid Kapoor that excited everyone the most. After that when the first character poster of the film was released it sent everyone in a state of frenzy. If Deepika Padukone’s look as Rani Padmini didn’t create enough buzz, Shahid Kapoor’s Mahrawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh’s Sultan Alauddin Khilji’s character poster took the hype to an all time high. In my personal opinion those posters had created enough buzz that even if they hadn’t released the trailer, the film would’ve taken a flying start at the boxoffice.

Trailer-Alert

Anyway the trailer is here and it is everything that you expected it to be. It is majestic, gigantic and truly a magnum opus we all have been waiting for after the sheer brilliance of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. One look at the trailer and you’ll know that it is the biggest Bollywood film in over a decade.

The trailer is bound to give you goosebumps…

Check out the trailer below:

Is Deepika Padukone the reason behind Ranveer Singh rejecting a film opposite Katrina Kaif?

ranveer-singh-katrina

It was a couple of months back when Ranveer Singh and Katrina Kaif were spotted by the shutterbugs outside Zoya Akhtar’s residence. And ever since, there have been speculations of them teaming up for a movie. It was also rumoured that director Nitya Mehra would star Ranveer opposite Kat for her next directorial.

But it was Ranveer who denied the offer since he had given his dates to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’. But now the rumours are that Ranveer might have rejected the offer because of girlfriend Deepika.

It was when Ranveer’s spokesperson denied the report saying, “There is no truth in this.”

ranveer-singh-deepika-padukone

A leading daily had reported that Ranveer is trying to lighten things up between Deepika and Katrina. Talking about the same, a source had said, “The two actresses had a fallout over their ex Ranbir Kapoor. It is only fitting that Deepika’s current beau sorts this problem out. Even if they don’t become friends, they can at least be cordial to each other in public. Like Salman Khan and Abhishek Bachchan and likeSaif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor. Enough time has passed for the two actresses to now put their past behind them. Ranveer, who has become very fond of Katrina, is keen that the two actresses call a truce. Ranveer and Kat like and even follow each other on Instagram.”

Let’s see if Ranveer and Katrina actually team up together or no.

Are Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in a live-in relationship now?

‘Padmavati’ is one of the most awaited movies of this year. With the magnum opus sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and stellar stars like Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor, this epic drama will surely mint some money at the box-office.

The ‘Padmavati’ team is currently shooting in Film City location of Mumbai which is in Goregaon. According to a report in a leading daily, a few sequences from the Kolhapur schedule were remaining, which are now being shot simultaneously at Dahisar, which happens to be a few kilometres away from Film City.

Ranveer is shuttling back and forth between the two locations which often tends to get tedious for the actor. A source close to the development informed a tabloid, ” In the sequence being shot currently in Dahisar, Alauddin Khilji, played by Ranveer Singh, sets up camp opposite the Chittor Fort. Ranveer was shooting here for two days and is juggling between Film City and Dahisar.

As per industry grapevine, Ranveer Singh’s co-star and alleged girlfriend Deepika Padukone has moved in with him for the course of the movie shoot. Ranveer bought a house on the outskirts of the city so that it is closer to the shooting locations and Deepika has chosen to stay with him which will cut down on their travel time.

So we don’t know if this moving in together is just tentative or will they choose to actually take their relationship to the next level by living in together for good?

We will just have to wait and watch!

Deepika Padukone Might Be Walking Out Of Shah Rukh Khan’s Next – Here’s Why!

Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone

Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Padmavati has been a talking point since the time it was announced. More recently, the vandalism of the film’s sets is what had the movie in the news. Even though the unfortunate incidents has caused a delay in the film’s schedule, SLB is hell bent on sticking to the December release of the film, as planned.

This has had a trickle down effect on the actors – for instance, according to Open Magazine, Deepika Padukone has had to bow out of Anand L Rai’s next film with Shah Rukh Khan.

Oh well, you win some you learn some.

Priyanka Chopra on Deepika Padukone’s identity crisis in the west: I guess I’m the most popular brown face that everyone has known

Priyanka-Deepika-2

We caught up with Priyanka Chopra in Mumbai recently, before she went to the Met Gala and got everyone talking with her bold fashion outing. The actress has a found a new home in the US and was in Mumbai just for a few days. Priyanka was to promote her upcoming film with Dwayne Johnson, Baywatch. Priyanka talked about success, Hollywood and even The Rock, but it was her remark about Deepika Padukone’s identity crisis in the west that bowled us over. Ever so humble Priyanka admitted that she had watched videos of paparazzi confusing Deepika for her. In her inimitable style she quipped, “That’s not fair and it’s not right.”

When we quizzed the actress about Deepika being mistaken for her by the western media, she said, “I did see that and you know that’s just ignorance and it’s not right. I guess I’m the most popular brown face that everyone has known. Every brown girl does not look the same. Don’t mistake it. Let’s try and tell us apart. That was not right and it’s not fair she’s a massive star from India.”

Having said that, the Quantico babe also added, “But it’s also, like I understand I guess. When I went to America for the first time, at least Deepika‘s had a film (xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage). When I went to America for the first time I would walk into the room and introduce myself. I don’t expect people to know me either, because it’s a different country. Just because I’m a popular star in India doesn’t mean the whole world has to knows me. Just because I’m a Bollywood actor doesn’t mean people who do not watch Hindi movies have to know me. I’m not entitled like that. I guess that is another aspect of this.”

Things obviously are different today, not only does the west love Priyanka and her fashion outings, they are in awe of our desi girl. The actress has managed to make a mark in Hollywood that no other Bollywood actor/actress has managed to do in the past. When we further reminded the actress that she needs no introduction anymore she agreed and said, “I mean that was like before Quantico.”

Is Katrina Kaif’s Team Accusing Deepika Padukone Of Spreading Rumours About Her?

Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif

Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif

Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone really don’t get along do they? Their contention starts with their common ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor, but the rivalry is primarily a professional one. Though Deepika has tried to be chill about the whole thing (remember her tweet for Katrina and Anushka Sharma‘s Koffee With Karan episode?), Katrina has never shown much of an inclination for friendship.

This time, Katrina’s team has accused Deepika of spreading fake news about the actress. According to a report on DNA, Deepika has replaced Katrina as the face of L’Oréal and this shake up has been attributed to Katrina’s alleged uncooperative behaviour. But people close to Katrina have hit back, saying that she parted ways with the brand as the actress launching her own make-up line and due to ethical reasons, can’t continue being the brand ambassador of L’Oréal.

Katrina’s team has specifically taken Deepika’s name and stated that it’s her camp that is spreading unsavory rumours about her. Here’s what a source said to DNA –

Why is there insecurity about Katrina? Wonder who Deepika’s advisers are, who are behaving like this? One could understand if you don’t have anything. But when you do, what is the need to pull down others to push yourself up?”

What do you think?

Deepika Padukone standing in queue for her meal.

That Deepika Padukone was having a gala time while shooting her debut Hollywood flick, ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ is no news for us. We have seen umpteen number of pictures and videos shared by our ‘Mastani’ where she was seen enjoying with Vin Diesel, Ruby Rose and other co-stars. But we have come across an off shoot video of Deepika that has taken us by surprise. The actress is literally waiting in queue with the rest of the cast for her meal. Ruby, who shot the video, is heard telling Deepika, “You waiting in line, Deepika? They don’t know who you are?” To this, the ‘Piku’ star just makes a cute, innocent face.

Deepika’s heartwarming winning speech!

Deepika Padukone was the lady in demand at the 61st Britannia Filmfare Awards as she walked away with the coveted Best Actress Award for her performance in the film ‘Piku’. But instead of giving the regular thank you speech, Deepika touched the hearts of her fans by reading out her father’s letter which she had found in her drawer. Her father had written, “You sleep on the floor Deepika when there are guests at home. Live a life that is healthy, everything else is transient. If you love what you do nothing else matters, not even awards. Follow your heart and live your dream. You are our daughter and then an actress.” Deepika is undoubtedly as lovely a daughter as she has portrayed in Piku, which won her the Filmfare trophy.

Moving on from Piku, know more about her rumoured upcoming film ‘Gustakhiyan’…

But as per a news report on BollywoodLife, the Bajirao Mastani director has signed Deepika Padukone opposite Irrfan. This would be their second pairing after the successful Piku.

When Deepika Padukone first shared a picture of hers with Vin Diesel, it became an instant rage. And as the news of DP starring in the next XXX film came our way, fans just about went crazy over it. After the initial excitement, however, we were gripped with curiosity to find out more about Dippy role in the film title, XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage. Though the script has been kept well under wraps, we recently found out a few deets about the film. A report on The Hollywood Reporter, stated that the new XXX film will be close to the Fast and Furious franchise in that Cage will no longer be alone; he will now have a team of three sexy sidekicks. The report stated that Deepika will be seen playing a huntress in the film and also Cage’s ex lover. And Nina Dobrev will play a witty, sarcastic techie while Ruby Rose will play a sniper.

Ever since Bollywood’s reigning queen bee Deepika Padukone posted a picture with Hollywood star Vin Diesel, rumours have been rife of her bagging a role in the famous XXX series. Although neither Vin nor Deepika confirmed the news, the director of XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, DJ Caruso, confirmed the news on Twitter. In a chat session with fans, he casually spoke about Deepika’s role and said, “we start in January. She starts sometime in February.” Now that the cat is finally out of the bag, we wish DP all the success she deserves. You go girl!

Deepika Padukone seems to have impressed one and all with her performance in ‘Bajirao Mastani’. However, in a recent interview with IANS, Deepika revealed that she is the opposite to her character in actuality. Deepika was quoted saying, “It’s a real-life character, so I have to portray it that way, but I am a very conservative person by nature and so, I am not quite for it. I feel there is a Mastani in every woman, because we don’t go to the battlefield every day, but we are faced with certain situations where we have to be strong, and confident. It’s an inspirational character.” [sic]

The Bajirao Mastani director barred Deepika Padukone and others from using any make-up while shooting for the mujra number recently. In order to keep it authentic, Sanjay asked everyone to tone it down, as make-up was not used in the days of Bajirao Peshwa, reports Bollywoodlife.com.

Deepika Padukone : ‘I have absolutely no sense of math or money’ 

Deepika Padukone definitely has her head on her shoulders. While she is currently at the top of her game, she is not insecure of her position or scared of losing it all. The actress, hence, doesn’t want to shift her attention from acting to other, more lucrative avenues. It is due to this reason that the actress doesn’t want to don the producer’s hat anytime soon. In an interview with DNA, the actress has been quoted as saying that while she would love to do production work, she doesn’t want to be a producer. She further clarifies her stand by saying that if she has a team that will do it for her, then it would be fine with her as she doesn’t think that she has the bandwidth or capacity to take on the role of a producer. She reveals that she has no sense of math or money and that if someone has a great script and needs to add her name to greenlight a project, she would be happy to do it. She asserts that she has no business sense.

Deepika Padukone says she does not have the capacity to take on the role of a producer

Deepika Padukone is on a high these days. The actress is busy shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. While acting keeps her happy, this leggy lass has no plans of becoming a producer, a choice that comes naturally to many stars in B-Town. According to a report on Bollywoodlife.com, Deepika said that she’d love to do production work, but not to be a producer and that the job of a producer was complex.

Deepika Padukone is on the top of her game. With back to back hits and big budget films in her kitty, the Piku actress is currently wrapping up the schedule of Bajirao Mastani. The actress has apparently caught the fancy of Bengali filmmakers after playing a Bengali character in Piku, reports Mid-day.com. If buzz is to be believed, some directors and producers from Bengali film industry have approached Deepika with film offers, the report stated. The report quoted a source saying that Dippy’s team has received calls from leading Bengali filmmakers who are keen to sign her for their projects.

Deepika Padukone is one of the most promising actresses of Bollywood. Her high spirit and sporty attitude charms everyone in the industry. On the contrary, her sister Anisha tries to keep low profile, reports Pinkvilla.com. Reports suggest that Deepika and Anisha bond like BFFs, and Deepika adores her little sister and deems her to be her biggest critic. A selfie posted by the actress on Twitter expressed it all. Anisha is known for playing golf, but shies away from coming in the limelight. The selfie features Anisha, Deepika with a friend Pooja Dadlani. Isn’t it adorable?

Deepika Padukone, who has given back-to-back hits and is currently ruling the number one spot in Bollywood, doesn’t mind giving away her stardom for settling down in life, reports DNA. In an interview with the publication, the actress revealed that she wants lots of kids after marriage. Dippy was quoted saying that she understands the importance of family and it completes her as a person. The Piku actress further added that she wants lots of children as she loves them. She also feels that spending time with kids is like a therapy. That is the reason she spends a lot of time with Shah Rukh Khan’s son AbRam and Homi Adajania’s kids, stated the actress. Deepika considers her fondness for kids as being selfish, because in the name of spending time with kids, she is actually selfishly using them for her therapy, concluded the report.

Piku, which stars Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan, has been applauded by critics as well as the audience. It has also been in news for the bond that Big B and Deepika shared during its filming. But the surprising part is that Dippy has seen only a few films featuring Amitabh Bachchan and that too, some recent ones that came in 2000 and later. In an interview with ABP News, when the actress was asked about the first Big B film she saw, she went silent for a few moments. Before she could recall anything, Big B intervened saying that the dimpled actress hadn’t seen any of his films. After a while, Deepika confessed that she hadn’t seen any of Amitabh’s old films, but some new ones like Mohabbatein and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.

While the nation stood divided on Deepika Padukone’s My Choice video, her appearance in an advertisement for a jewelry brand will melt your heart. In the ad, the dimpled beauty is seen sharing screen space with her mother Ujjwala Padukone.

Deepika has voiced a monologue in the background with a heart-touching score backing it. While she is seen trying some gold necklaces sitting in a showroom, she tells us how fame has done no good as it hasn’t stopped her mother from scolding her.

At the end of the video, we see the mother-daughter duo hugging each other crying their hearts out. And then we hear Deepika saying, “Duniya ke liye main chaahey kitni bhi badi ho jaaoon, for you I’ll always be your little girl.”

Deepika Padukone’s Piku is being applauded by the audience. The credit goes to impressive work of Amitabh Bachchan, Irrfan Khan and Deepika. A report on Bollywoodlife.com stated that in a video showcasing the making of Piku, Dippy apparently yelled at filmmaker Shoojit Sircar. The actress was learning Bengali from Shoojit, when she got frustrated and yelled at him saying, “I am not a north Indian, I have a south Indian accent!”

Deepika Padukone has a habit of eating something or the other every three minutes, states a report on Pinkvilla.com. The actress, someone would think follows a strict diet to maintain herself, actually has no such diet, the report stated. Quoting Amitabh Bachchan, who revealed about Deepika’s eating habits during the shoot, the report stated that Dippy has a habit of munching every three minutes. Quoting Deepika the report also stated that Big B would snatch food from her and eat at times.

Deepika Padukone, who will be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming historical film, Bajirao Mastani, shared a picture with her fans on her Instagram account. The actress seems to be in a jolly mood as she poses with a ‘thumbs up pout’. Sitting beside her is Archana Puran Singh and Parmeet Sethi’s son, Ayushmaan Sethi. On the work front, Deepika will start rehearsing for a dance off sequence with Priyanka Chopra for Bajirao Mastani.

In an interview with Hindustantimes.com, Deepika Padukone spoke about her experience while shooting in Varanasi. Piku was shot in Varanasi and Deepika was seen exploring the city. A source was quoted in the report as saying that whenever Deepika had free time, she used to visit the tourist spots in Varanasi. Deepika was also quoted in the same report as saying that she used every opportunity to walk around the city. She further added that this was her first Varanasi visit, and yet she felt completely at peace there. Deepika also quipped that she had roadside chai with Irrfan in the bylanes of Varanasi.

According to a report on Indiaglitz.com, Deepika Padukone will have to wear an armour weighing over 20 kg for a flight sequence in Bajirao Mastani. Reportedly, it is an intense war sequence and Deepika has been learning sword fighting among other things for the same. So she has been wearing the heavy outfit and getting comfortable in it, the report concluded.

After beginning her Bollywood career with a rather desi role, Deepika Padukone has taken it upon herself to represent every state of the country. The actress seems to be acing her desi girl act. After a bevy of roles that portrayed her as the city chick in films like Cocktail, Race 2 and Desi Boyz, DP has been playing roles that are rooted in the country.

Chennai Express: Deepika Padukone decided to go all out to imbibe the South Indian accent for Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express. Deepika’s character in the film is that of a South Indian girl who has been brought up in a remote village and hence the accent was a necessary part of preparing for the role. Needless to say, Deepika perfected her accent and it was difficult to ascertain if Deepika indeed spoke with a heavy South Indian accent or faking it. In addition to acquiring the accent, Deepika’s look was also kept authentic. Plain sarees with broad borders and blouses in contrasting colours, characterised her look in the film. Her jewelery was kept basic, with gold, temple jewelery and colourful bangles.

Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram-Leela: After alighting from the Chennai Express, Deepika had a whirlwind romance of sorts with her Gujarati Romeo aka Ranveer Singh in Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram-Leela. Sashaying in voluminous ghagras and itsy-bitsy cholis, DP was at her sensual best in the film. While her chemistry with Ranveer Singh was electric, Deepika’s wide-eyed innocent act garnered her a lot of attention. While the accent was not as evident here, she did pick up cues from Gujaratis and worked on her ‘s’ and ‘t’ to make her dialogue sound more authentic and in sync with the setting of the film.

Finding Fanny: Set in Goa, Finding Fanny presented Deepika with the opportunity to return to her roots. Deepika played a Goan in the film and had to mouth some Konkani – the language of the locals. This came easy for the actress who is well-versed with the language. She was reportedly delighted with the chance to speak a language she hardly used. Dressed in sundresses with her hair let loose, Deepika painted a pretty picture as the bohemian chick.

Happy New Year: For her third film with Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika decided to acquire a Maharashtrian accent. While the film didn’t require her to put on a typical Marathi accent, she worked on making her language more pedestrian, a far cry from the refined manner in which she speaks. She also dressed in garish costumes before her character underwent a makeover. The film required her to play a bumbling girl and the otherwise confident actress essayed it with perfection.

Piku: With her well-defined features, Deepika surely pulls off the Bengali girl look from what is evident in the pictures clicked on the sets of the film. What’s even more exciting is the fact that the actress has learnt basic Bengali to get her act correct in Piku where she shares screen space with Amitabh Bachchan. While shooting the film in Kolkata, Deepika also apparently fell in love with the City of Joy and its old-world charm. DP will apparently be seen wearing a lot of cotton kurtis in the film. The rest of her look seems to be simple with kohled eyes and a bindi to accentuate her features.
